Sorry it took me a while to reply. Somehow I thought I would get email alerts if there was activity on the board, so I hadn't checked back. We have early seating. Thanks for sharing the Duffy design. I have a couple of people on Esty working on designs to adapt the door number circle with the Duffy design. I will show my son what you came up with though.

Hi Sara, this thread is kind of quiet for now but I'm sure things will pick up and then you will be receiving those email alerts. As for myself I have been pre-occupied with both my parents in nursing homes. Dad has ALZ and mom broke her hip for the second time in less than 5 months.
I have a lot of legal business to deal with and I've been kind of out straight for the last month or so. That being said I booked my airfare with Southwest this morning and got a great deal with my RR points. Total cost of RT flights...$10.00,and I'll have enough for next years travel plans for three...Oh yeah, doing that happy dance right now.

Hey guys, so whatever the reason may be, I got an email saying our rooms were changed from 5Es to 5Cs so our new room numbers are 7548 and 7550. Still can't wait! I also got my new purse for the cruise for Mother's Day. Saw one similar in Downtown Disney and just fell in love with it. A Minnie Mouse Harvey bag! We are as excited as ever!

Put down a deposit on our cabin!!! The past three years have been very trying so I am so happy for this cruise. Just wish it was more than four days, but I gotta start slow with hubby. Not to get into a lot of detail but for the past three and half years I have been unemployed and hubby for two years. We went on so many interviews but when they see us, they assume that because we look older than most folks interviewing they assume we are too old to do the job!! So we both decided to just file for Social Security and be done with it. Very, very frustrating. With no jobs that means no health benefits. Hubby finally qualified for the VA since he was in the Navy. Last November he went in for a general visit and had a PSA test done. The results indicated his level was up from 2.4 to 50 He went thru the usual tests and had a biopsy on his Prostrate and then the Lymph Nodes and on Feb 8, 2013 he was told it was Cancer. He has started on a hormone shot and a pill. Last PSA test the number was down to 25 So now they will monitor him and he will get the shot every six months. The thing we have learned is every man will pass with prostate cancer the trick is not to die from it. So men who are 40 or older.......just buck it up, bend over, grab your ankles and cough!!! In two years time it got that bad and surgery, radiation and chemo is not in the cards for my hubby. We have been married for almost 44 years and we will get thru this!!

tinker1bell----------Terry--63
hubby not on dis-------Hal--65

Hi Terry, so glad that you are now officially cruising with us. We're a small group so far but I'm sure the numbers will increase as we get closer. Happy to hear that your DH is doing well. My prayers are with you both. I hear you about the job market. My DD has been looking for work for over two years. She's suppose to be a vet tech and is now working the night shift at a local Honey Farms. I worry about her because another night employee in another HF was robbed and then shot in the face for no reason. I've added your info to the first page and one question. What is a champagne girl? I see it from time to time here on the DIS. I look forward to meeting you both. Love your picture BTW. Have a magical evening.
Linda

The Champagne Girls are a group of girls who get together wearing pink, even boas and drink Champagne. On our 14 day WBTA there was about 35 of us!! It was such fun.

I have not officially booked but will do so on Tuesday! Actually I making a change of my existing cruise on the Fantasy to this one. We live in Panama City Florida and it will be my birthday cruise. We are staying 2 nights at Kidani and 2 nights at Vero Beach and then the cruise. This will be my 10th cruise on Disney and I think my 35 or so cruise. I am debating on getting a balcony verses the Magical Port hole. I love the Magical Port hole but the view from the balcony is awesome! Will see if the offer Florida rates closer to time.

First Cruise!!

I am a Disney addict by birth, and have converted my family. My husband has wanted to go on a cruise for years, what could be better than combining the two?
FE-maybe, we want to learn more about it first.
See you real soon!
